Private View: Friday 18th July, 6-8pm (all welcome).

Open: Saturdays and Sundays, 11am-4pm until 27th July 2014.

Following on from his award of first prize in the inaugural Bankley Open Call exhibition last year, this show presents an opportunity to enjoy a major body of works on canvas and paper by the artist Peter Seal.

Born in Scotland, and resident in Manchester since the early Eighties, Peter Seal has built a solid reputation for his quietly powerful abstract paintings. The work is notable for its subtle geometries and resonant colour. Notwithstanding their apparent simplicity, each of Seal’s paintings can be six to eight weeks in the making, much of which might be not in the physical act of painting itself, but in a highly considered assimilation or “settling time”. The work is notable also for its craftsmanship and its beauty of surface, achieved through a gradual process of layering.

Along with canvases, Seal will also show a substantial group of black and white collages. These are more organic in form and process to the paintings, and serve as a parallel activity.

The show has been curated by Ian Massey, for further information, please contact: info@ianmasseyart.co.uk
